How to Reset and Clear All Taskbar Toolbars in Vista and Windows 7

information   Information
This will show you how to reset and remove all of your taskbar toolbars in Vista and Windows 7.

This can be helpful if you are unable to remove a taskbar toolbar, or you just wish to quickly remove all toolbars on the taskbar.

This only includes resetting and removing all of your taskbar toolbars, and not pinned programs and shortcuts or Jump Lists.

Note   Note

By default, your user account's taskbar toolbars are saved in the registry location below. This is what this tutorial will be deleting to reset and remove all taskbar toolbars for you using a BAT file.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop


EXAMPLE: Taskbar Toolbars in Windows 7
NOTE: You can see the available default taskbar toolbars by right clicking on the taskbar and clicking on Toolbars. As an example, the Recycle Bin was added as a "New toolbar" on my taskbar.

Here's How:
1. Click on the Download buttom below to download the .bat file below, then run it.
Reset_Clear-Taskbar_Toolbars.bat

download
2. If prompted, click on Run.
NOTE: If you like, you can stop getting the Run prompt by unblocking the downloaded .bat file.

3. You will now notice your screen flicker as explorer is restarted.

4. All toolbars on your taskbar will now be reset and cleared.
That's it,
Shawn
